I have a table that I imported from Excel, and since I have made many changes to this table in QuarkXPress I do not want it to be linked to the Excel file any longer. Is there some way to unlink this table?
The answer is simple, if not obvious:
To break the link with the original Excel file, choose Table> Convert Table> To Group. (You can also right-click or Control-click on the table, and choose the same thing.) The table will keep its formatting, but no longer be linked to the original Excel file.
